Why does the OpenSSL library not load on Mac OS X 10.9?

I'm running the splunk UF on a Mac Mini running OS X 10.9.5 and any script that calls on the splunk binary for openSSL crashes with the error:
dyld: Library not loaded: /Users/eserv/wrangler/build-home/6.2.1/lib/libssl.1.0.0.dylib
Referenced from: /Applications/splunkforwarder/bin/openssl
Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap: 5

The scripts reference the library path but it still crashes.
EX: CMD='eval date ; eval LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$SPLUNK_HOME/lib $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/openssl sha1 $PASSWD_FILE ; cat $PASSWD_FILE'

The scripts will work if ran using OS X openssl bin instead of the splunk one.
EX: CMD='eval date ; openssl sha1 $PASSWD_FILE ; cat $PASSWD_FILE'

I don't what the scripts to use the non-splunk bin as that could cause troubles in the future as either the openssl bin\library or the splunk install get changed as that would require re-editing the scripts.

Please call the openssl command in the context of splunk, to have the proper variables.

example
/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk cmd openssl sha1 /etc/passwd

it works when I run the command as in the example /opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk cmd openssl sha1 /etc/passwd
but the shell scripts that invoke the openssl command do not work. I stopped and restarted Splunk using sudo /Application/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk stop and then* sudo /Application/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk start* but the scripts still fail should I edit the scripts to change $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/openssl sha1 to $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk cmd openssl sha1

yes use the cms and put the path to the .../bin/splunk

That works though I would not think that it should be necessary since the splunk process is calling the cmd that then has to call the splunk bin and then cmd again to get openssl to work.

Yes, the context is not clear, splunk is supposed to call the script as himself.
The "splunk cmd" command must do an additional thing, maybe forcing the script to use the splunk openssl binary, instead of the openssl from the system.

I cannot tell.
